U. S. Antimony Corporation Sets Zeolite Sales Records, Continues Company-wide Process Upgrades Program - Provides Operations Update

Wednesday, January 12, 2022 8:00 AM

THOMPSON FALLS, MT / ACCESSWIRE / January 12, 2022 / United States Antimony Corporation (USAC - the Company) is pleased to announce that December zeolite shipments from its Bear River Zeolite facility (BRZ, website Bear River Zeolite) totaled 1,837 tons ($482,683) bringing the 2021 annual total to 14,040 tons and $3,027,259.

The Company is pleased to see that the implemented improvements are starting to yield increases in production and profit. Further upgrades are underway and planned at BRZ for both the mill and the mine that will enhance operations. BRZ is a leader in supplying the highest quality zeolite. As the environmental and regulatory demands for remediation of contaminated air and water continue to increase, we expect continuing high demand for our products. Similarly, upgrades to all of USAC's facilities are in various stages of implementation.

USAC's President commented, "The Company's expertise in the processing and refining of antimony combined with the continuing plant improvements made possible with last year's financing have had a positive effect on sales and earnings. I also note that the Rotterdam average price for antimony has increased and appears stable at the highest prices in the past 9 years."

Operations Up-date -November & December

Operations Upgrades

BRZ: Repair and modification of the apron feeder to the jaw crusher and modifications of the feed bin to the cone crusher were completed during the period. The pouring of concrete foundations for both the new 50'x100' warehouse (for additional storage of product) and for a 40' x 60' shop (for servicing equipment) was completed. A new classification machine on Line-1 which will lessen down-time was ordered and will be arriving and installed in Q1 2022.

Madero: The Madero operations continued to produce crude antimony metal to lessen trucking costs (as compared to crude antimony trioxide) to Thompson Falls. For this period, about two truckloads of purified antimony ingots for shipment directly to customers was produced. As a part of the smelter infrastructure upgrade project, a program to clean-up and process approximately 2000 tons of legacy slag was started and is now 60% complete.

Thompson Falls: Modifications to two new tri-sulphide furnaces were made to increase efficiencies. The modifications to the furnaces were completed and the furnaces are now being re-assembled. These modifications were identified as necessary after assessing the performances of both furnaces while producing test batches of antimony trisulphide in early October.

One of our old short-rotary furnaces (SRF's) has been relined and the refractory fired-in in November. This furnace has been in production since then and the company intends to continue relining aging furnaces in Montana one by one as necessary. The company's increase in wage rates combined with its recruiting efforts has resulted in 4 additional laborers and increased our rate of production by about 57%.

Ambri Inc.: USAC has purchased a dual-deck classifier to upgrade the rate and quantity of production of antimony to supply to Ambri.

Los Juarez/Puerto Blanco: USAC has started processing 2000 tons of selected material mined at the Los Juarez property. The material is being run through the Puerto Blanco flotation mill to produce antimony concentrate also containing precious metals. This 2000 tons was selected from several mined jasperoid outcrops that have been open pitted at Los Juarez. This processing campaign will afford USAC much better statistical data of the head-grade and recovery. Modifications were made in this period to the cyanide leach circuit that eliminated a mechanical problem that had existed. USAC has been solicited by two additional mining/exploration companies in Mexico and are engaged in negotiations towards a potential partnership regarding the exploration of the Los Juarez property.

i-80 Launches Comprehensive Plan to Create Nevada Focused Gold Mining Company

Download Press Release

All currencies expressed as United States dollars unless otherwise stated

Reno, Nevada, January 12, 2022 – i-80 GOLD CORP. (TSX:IAU) (OTCQX:IAUCF) (“i-80”, or the “Company”) is pleased to announce its development plans for 2022 – a catalyst-rich year as the Company commences its plans to build a comprehensive Nevada mining complex. i-80 is in the process of developing multiple mining operations to achieve its objective of building a Nevada focused mining company with a goal of ultimately producing more than 500,000 ounces of gold annually.

i-80 completed multiple strategic transactions in 2021, the first year of it being a publicly traded Company, that position the Company to achieve its goal of becoming a prominent, stand alone, gold producer in the state of Nevada. i-80 acquired the Granite Creek, Lone Tree and Ruby Hill properties to become one of the largest holders of gold and silver resources in Nevada (See Table 4).

Importantly, the Company secured the ability to process all types of gold mineralization, including refractory gold bearing mineralization, through the acquisition of the Lone Tree processing complex and also through interim processing agreements with Nevada Gold Mines (“NGM”) that provide the Company with the flexibility to process material from any of the three planned underground operations until the Lone Tree autoclave is restarted. Processing of refractory mineralization remains one of the biggest barriers to entry in Nevada and i-80 is currently one of only three companies with this capability.

To execute its “Hub and Spoke” development plan, i-80 intends to construct four new mining operations over the next three years, complete multiple large-scale drill programs, advance permitting, build a tier-one exploration, development and mining operations team, and restart the Lone Tree autoclave.

Lone Tree will be the “Hub” of i-80’s Nevada operations as the central processing facility, operations office, assay lab and warehouse for all sites. Mineralization from Granite Creek, Ruby Hill, and McCoy-Cove will feed the Lone Tree Autoclave, once restarted, and mineralization from the Buffalo Mountain (and Brooks) open pit will be processed at the Lone Tree heap leach facility. So that investors can better understand deliverables, and track execution progress, the Company is adopting a “Scorecard” as presented in Table 1 below.

“With a strong balance sheet, we are concentrated on achieving our goal of becoming one of Nevada’s largest gold producers”, stated Ewan Downie, Chief Executive Officer of i-80 Gold. “2021 was a highly successful first year for i-80 where we closed multiple strategic acquisitions that position i-80 as one of the largest holders of gold and silver resources in the State.”

“Executing our aggressive growth platform is the key focus for 2022 and management is in the process of building a tier-one management team with a track record of operational excellence in Nevada”, stated Matt Gili, President & Chief Operating Officer of i-80 Gold. “We are targeting peer-best production growth through the development of our portfolio of permitted, road accessible deposits. Additionally, the Company has gained a strategic advantage as one of only three companies in the State with infrastructure to process refractory mineral resources, once the facility has been retrofitted to suit the Company’s deposits.”

Lone Tree Processing Facilities and Buffalo Mountain Project

Lone Tree is expected to become the hub of i-80’s Nevada operations, and the central processing facility for mineralization from the first four planned mining projects. Importantly, Lone Tree is host to infrastructure that, following successful refurbishment efforts, will allow it to process refractory and oxide mineralization. Currently on care and maintenance, the property hosts existing infrastructure that includes a whole ore autoclave with capacity of 1M Tonnes/year, a flotation circuit with capacity of 1.8M Tonnes/year, a CIC circuit & leach pad with 6.5M Tonnes of remaining capacity, a tailings dam with 1.5M Tonnes of remaining constructed capacity and an additional 10 M Tonnes of designed capacity, a waste dump, along with several buildings useful for the development of all i-80’s projects including a warehouse, maintenance shop, administration building and assay lab.

In Q1-2022, the Company plans to award the contract to complete a detailed engineering study for the restart of the autoclave and secure key personnel to execute the restart plan. Additionally, permitting for the development of the Buffalo Mountain open pit mine is underway, where gold mineralization is expected to be processed at the Lone Tree leach pad facility. An initial resource for Buffalo Mountain is expected to be complete in H1-2022.

i-80 considers the Lone Tree infrastructure to be the most strategically located processing facility in Nevada, located on Interstate 80 with the Nevada Railway less than two kilometres to the north, and will be the platform from which i-80 intends to grow its business (see Figure 1 below).

Granite Creek Property

The fully permitted Granite Creek underground represents the Company’s most advanced project. Initial rehabilitation of the underground workings was completed in 2021 and additional levels are now being constructed and multiple levels are being prepared for mining. A surface and underground drill program, expected to comprise more than 20,000 metres of drilling, is well underway with positive results. Following the 2022 drill campaign, the Company intends to complete a revised resource estimate focused on the underground mineralized zones.

The Granite Creek Mine Project hosts both open pit and underground resources and is strategically located proximal to Nevada Gold Mines’ Twin Creeks and Turquoise Ridge mines at the north end of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend at its intersection with the Getchell gold belt in Nevada. The underground deposit at Granite Creek represents one of the highest-grade gold deposits in North America with resource grades in excess of 10 grams per tonne (“g/t) gold (see Table 2 below).

The primary goal of the 2021/2022 drill program is to advance underground drilling and test mining with a target of ramping up to production in H1-2022. Underground drilling will be focused on delineating sufficient resources for near-term mine development and full production, and a cubex drill was recently added to define initial stoping areas. Initially, material mined from Granite Creek will be trucked for processing at the nearby NGM’s Twin Creeks processing facility through the interim processing arrangement that was entered into for processing until the Company’s Lone Tree facility is operational.

In addition to the underground program at Granite Creek, the surface drilling program testing near-surface mineralization for metallurgical purposes and open pit definition was completed in 2021. This part of the program was competed primarily to advance permitting for open pit mining including heap leach processing on-site. A Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Granite Creek Mine Project was completed in 2021 and a full feasibility study for the open pit project is planned to be completed in the future.

Ruby Hill Project

Ruby Hill includes an open pit mine and related infrastructure (mill / heap leach) and is located immediately west of the town of Eureka proximal to Highway 50. The Ruby Hill Property is host to multiple gold, silver and base metal deposits that collectively comprise one of Nevada’s largest mineral endowments that offer substantial upside. In Q4-2021, i-80 launched a multi-drill campaign that will see a minimum of 20,000 metres drilled in 2022 followed by a resource update. All deposits remain open along strike and at depth.

Multiple gold and polymetallic exploration targets exist on the property and i-80 will begin permitting for the construction of a decline to access the high-grade Ruby Deeps deposit and the Blackjack Zone with the intent of trucking refractory mineralization for processing at Lone Tree (see Figure 2). In H1-2022, i-80 will continue with processing of material mined in H2-2021 at the heap leach facility on the property. Ruby Hill also includes crushing and CIL processing infrastructure (see Figure 3).

Figure 3 – Ruby Hill Infrastructure

McCoy-Cove Property

In November 2021, i-80 announced that it intended to proceed with its planned underground, advanced-exploration, program at the Company’s 100%-owned McCoy-Cove Property. The underground plan will include the construction of a decline, and a level that will include multiple drill bays in order to upgrade resources and complete a Feasibility Study. The Cove deposit on the Property represents one of North America’s highest grade gold deposits with grades in excess of 10 grams per tonne gold (g/t Au) (see Table 3). The deposit remains open for expansion down-dip.

In the coming weeks, the Company will engage contractors to proceed with the initial underground development plan and drilling of approximately 40,000 metres that is expected to commence in the second half of 2022 followed by a Feasibility Study.

The McCoy-Cove Property is strategically located approximately 50 km south of the Company’s Lone Tree Complex, and immediately south of Nevada Gold Mines’ Phoenix Mine within the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend. The Property is accessed via all-season road from Highway 55 in Nevada.

ESG Initiative

The Company is focused on achieving industry best ESG practices. Since i-80’s inception in April 2021, the Company completed an ESG Assessment with a third-party consultant which highlighted key areas of focus going forward. The Company intends to grow on this success in 2022 with the goal of aligning with the ICMM Guidelines and has set out a plan to achieve this.

Financial Strength

In 2021, i-80 closed financings that will result in the Company having a strong balance sheet including nearly US$200 Million in cash and cash equivalents following funding of the previously announced financing package.

About i-80 Gold Corp.

i-80 Gold Corp. is a well-financed, Nevada-focused, mining company with a goal of achieving mid-tier gold producer status through the development of four new open pit and underground mining operations that will ultimately process ore at the Company’s central Lone Tree complex that includes an Autoclave.

SEC Industry Guide 7 does not recognize the existence of resources. Under Regulation S-K 1300, reserve and resource definitions are substantially similar to the corresponding CIM Definition Standards; however, there are differences between NI 43-101 and Regulation S-K 1300 and therefore information contained in the press release may not be comparable to similar information made public by public U.S. companies pursuant to the Regulation S-K 1300 or SEC Industry Guide 7.

Cautionary Statement:

A production decision at each of the Ruby Hill Mine and Lone Tree projects was made by previous operators of the mines, prior to the completion of the acquisition of each such project by the Company and the Company made a decision to continue production subsequent to the acquisitions at each of the projects. This decision by the Company to continue production and, to the knowledge of the Company, the prior production decision at each of the projects were not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves, demonstrating economic and technical viability, and, as a result, there may be an increased uncertainty of achieving any particular level of recovery of minerals or the cost of such recovery, which include increased risks associated with developing a commercially mineable deposit. Historically, such projects have a much higher risk of economic and technical failure. There is no guarantee that anticipated production costs will be achieved. Failure to achieve the anticipated production costs would have a material adverse impact on the Company’s cash flow and future profitability. Readers are cautioned that there is increased uncertainty and higher risk of economic and technical failure associated with such production decisions.

Wallbridge Adds Near Surface Mineralization in Area 51 and Extends Tabasco/Cayenne at Depth

January 12, 2022

View PDF

Toronto, Ontario – January 12, 2022 – Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX:WM, OTCQX:WLBMF) (“Wallbridge” or the “Company”) today announced further positive assay results from its resource drilling program on the Fenelon Gold Property (“Fenelon” or the “Property”), located on the highly prospective Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend in Northern Abitibi, Quebec.

Ongoing drilling within the 2021 mineral resource estimate (“MRE”) open pit shell has intersected new, near-surface mineralization grading 2.59 g/t of gold over 57.65 metres in drill hole FA-21-304. Deep resource drilling, below the current extent of the MRE has also been successful in extending the Eastern Shoot of the Tabasco/Cayenne Zones with 9.70 g/t of gold over 3.70 metres in hole FA-21-311-W1.

“These drilling results continue to validate substantial opportunities to increase the mineral resources within the known footprint of the Fenelon deposit, and within the extensions along strike and at depth,” stated Marz Kord, President & CEO of Wallbridge. “In Area 51, we have encountered several new intersections with open pit potential, at higher grades than the average open pit grade in our 2021 MRE. Over the course of 2022, in addition to resource expansion and exploration drilling, we will continue to target zones with the potential to deliver higher grade near surface mineralization inside the current pit shell, which will strengthen the overall economics of the open pit component of the project.”

Resource Expansion Drill Results

Highlight expansion intersections since the last news release from this program include:

FA-21-304 2.59 g/t Au over 57.65 metres, including
18.81 g/t Au over 2.10 metres, and
31.51 g/t Au over 2.50 metres in Area 51;
This intersection is near surface, starting at a vertical depth of only 110 metres and located inside the 2021 MRE open pit shell, but not within the resource block model.

FA-21-311-W1 9.70 g/t Au over 3.70 metres in the Tabasco Zone;
This intersection is at a vertical depth of 1,200 metres, 170 metres below the last intersection of the Tabasco/Cayenne Zones in the Eastern Shoot.

Resource In-fill Drill Results

Infill drilling to improve the quality and robustness of the existing resources remains ongoing. The following are highlight infill intersections since our last update:

FA-20-159-W3 1.40 g/t Au over 53.85 metres, including
2.44 g/t Au over 18.80 metres, which includes
4.71 g/t Au over 5.20 metres in Area 51;
FA-21-314 1.01 g/t Au over 36.20 metres, and
2.98 g/t Au over 16.60 metres in Area 51;
FA-21-314-W1 0.88 g/t Au over 34.65 metres, including
3.59 g/t Au over 4.80 metres in Area 51;

Assay QA/QC and Qualified Persons

Drill core samples from the ongoing drill program at Fenelon are cut and bagged either on site or by contractors and transported to SGS Canada Inc., AGAT Laboratories Ltd. or Bureau Veritas Commodities Canada Ltd. for analysis. Samples, along with standards and blanks that are included for quality assurance and quality control, were prepared and analyzed at the laboratories. Samples are crushed to 90% less than 2mm. A 1kg riffle split is pulverized to 85% passing 75 microns. 50g samples are analyzed by fire assay and AAS.

Information Concerning Estimates of Mineral Resources

The disclosure in this press release and referred to herein was prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 which differs significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). The terms "measured mineral resource", "indicated mineral resource" and "inferred mineral resource" used in this press release are in reference to the mining terms defined in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Standards (the "CIM Definition Standards"), which definitions have been adopted by NI 43-101. Accordingly, information contained in this press release providing descriptions of our mineral deposits in accordance with NI 43-101 may not be comparable to similar information made public by other U.S. companies subject to the United States federal securities laws and the rules and regulations thereunder.

Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral resources will ever be converted into reserves. Pursuant to CIM Definition Standards, "inferred mineral resources" are that part of a mineral resource for which quantity and grade or quality are estimated on the basis of limited geological evidence and sampling. Such geological evidence is sufficient to imply but not verify geological and grade or quality continuity. An inferred mineral resource has a lower level of confidence than that applying to an indicated mineral resource and must not be converted to a mineral reserve. However, it is reasonably expected that the majority of inferred mineral resources could be upgraded to indicated mineral resources with continued exploration. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource is economically or legally mineable. Disclosure of "contained ounces" in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute "reserves" by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures.

Canadian standards, including the CIM Definition Standards and NI 43-101, differ significantly from standards in the SEC Industry Guide 7. Effective February 25, 2019, the SEC adopted new mining disclosure rules under subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K of the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "SEC Modernization Rules"), with compliance required for the first fiscal year beginning on or after January 1, 2021. The SEC Modernization Rules replace the historical property disclosure requirements included in SEC Industry Guide 7. As a result of the adoption of the SEC Modernization Rules, the SEC now recognizes estimates of "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources". Information regarding mineral resources contained or referenced in this press release may not be comparable to similar information made public by companies that report according to U.S. standards. While the SEC Modernization Rules are purported to be "substantially similar" to the CIM Definition Standards, readers are cautioned that there are differences between the SEC Modernization Rules and the CIM Definitions Standards. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral resources that the Company may report as "measured mineral resources", "indicated mineral resources" and "inferred mineral resources" under NI 43-101 would be the same had the Company prepared the resource estimates under the standards adopted under the SEC Modernization Rules.

Riverside Resources Corporate Outlook for 2022

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 12, 2022) - Riverside Resources Inc. (TSXV: RRI) (OTCQB: RVSDF) (FSE: 5YY) ("Riverside" or the "Company"), is pleased to provide an outlook on the upcoming 2022 year's catalysts and some of the Company's achievements and milestones in 2021. Riverside continues to progress its Project Generator business model through staking quality prospects, working with partners, finding undervalued acquisitions, and advancing some of its main assets and retaining royalties on all its projects. Moving into 2022, the company will be very active on self-funding programs including having a cash position of over $5M and with partners such as BHP (one of the world's largest mining companies) and junior partners like Carlyle Commodities and Southern Empire for mineral exploration in Sonora, Mexico.

In 2022, Riverside expects to generate strong news flow from the following key projects and partnerships:

  • La Union Project, Sonora - Riverside working diligently to follow up high grade gold, silver and base metals with big potential discoveries targeted on the horizon;
    • While advancing its 100%-owned, La Union Project, Riverside's technical team is seeing strong potential moving forward. Results from January 2022 have demonstrated presence of up 84 g/t Au and >1500 g/t Ag in rock chip samples (see press release January 5, 2022);
  • The Oakes Project, Ontario - Riverside is progressing its IP interpretation and moving towards a self-funded drilling program for top potential targets in Q1 / 2022;
    • All internal data and evidence of high-grade mineralization presented in strong anomalous IP results, are leading the way for Riverside to take the next stage of drilling for its Canadian flagship project in 2022;
  • BHP Partnership, Sonora - Riverside has additional deals in the works, which are expected to close and be announced early this year. The company is also progressing on 3 funded programs with spending of over $3M in the first 6 months of 2022.
    • Copper exploration alliance on selected and defined projects, finalizing third party acquisitions, and advance work toward drilling;
  • Working to develop a new exploration partnership with a major mining company.
  • Acquire new mineral districts with past production, extensive exploration upside and company making potential.
  • Complete further drilling as part of the Carlyle partnership on the Cecilia project, which could define a possible mineralized body at depth around the Cerro Magallanes main dome.
  • Progress the Cuarentas Gold Project in Sonora with further drilling, and potentially test the porphyry copper center while expanding on the 2021 drill program.
  • Complete further farm out option deals from the Riverside portfolio such as Suaqui Grande, Suaqui Verde, High Lake and others.
  • Riverside plans to progress the Longrose and Pichette properties located in the Geraldton Greenstone Belt, Ontario with exploration and likely partnerships.
  • Porphyry Copper portfolio project, Ariel in Sonora - work with partner to drill test the porphyry copper targets.
These upcoming catalysts are summarized in the video link here:

As a brief recap of progress during 2021: Riverside started strong with multiple high-grade drill intercepts and one in particular of 25 m at 1.51 g/t Au at the Cecilia project, currently under the option agreement with Carlyle Commodities. The drill program with Carlyle was followed by additional funding from the exploration alliance with BHP where Riverside received US$3.5M for its copper project generation activities in Sonora. This investment has brought new and multiple opportunities for the BHP-Riverside selected projects, including third party acquisitions with additional funding towards geophysics and more detailed work with Riverside as the operator. After close to 3 years of partnership, BHP and Riverside are entering into more defined programs for the selected projects of interest, and specific findings that could trigger drilling in the near future. This progression is in line with the expected milestones and timelines that were laid out when Riverside first entered into this agreement with BHP.

This partnership with BHP is valuable to Riverside, as it opens up the possibility of making significant discoveries through accessing the major companies full carry of funding costs while seeking large new copper finds. In 2022 the partnership between BHP and Riverside is focused on more defined and detailed exploration, and therefore further advances the possibility for new large copper porphyry discoveries. With size and scale being the primary determinant of the viability and longevity of a mining operation, such a discovery would certainly be a game changer and more than five programs have now been generated with more coming in H1/2022.

As Riverside entered the second half of 2021, the company began exploring the Union project, a property that has been part of Riverside's portfolio in Sonora, Mexico. Consolidation and acquisition of the strategic claims for this project was set as a near-term goal that Riverside achieved. The company is now moving forward with a better understanding of the mineralized system and potential high grade gold and silver found at surface near the old workings at La Union district.

In Canada, Riverside increased its activity across its portfolio in 2021, including sale of the High Lake Greenstone Project and recovery of the Geraldton Greenstone Belt project portfolio including the high priority and drill-ready Oakes Gold project 20 kms east of the Hard Rock Gold Mine construction of Equinox Gold which will exceed 400,000 ounces gold per year production.

Equally important for Riverside has been the fact that it has managed and advanced this portfolio of assets in two countries with a tight share of only 71M shares outstanding and no warrants. This is in keeping with Riverside's philosophy of ensuring that capital intensive exploration should be done with a focus on creating the up most shareholder return while optimising a shared risk.

The company is now poised for strong upward movement with its quality assets as summarized on the website, particularly with the upcoming 2022 catalysts as outlined below:

Riverside's President and CEO, John-Mark Staude, stated: "We are excited by the good targets in Mexico and Canada and the strong team of people including our financing partners as we move ahead for an active first quarter of 2022 and throughout this coming year. Having strong treasury of over $5M with no warrants and no debt, Riverside has an excellent balance sheet as well as an ambitious technical outlook."

Capitan Mining Drills 35.1m of 0.42 g/t AuEq Including 4.6m of 1.1 g/t AuEq and Has Entered into an Agreement to Buyback All Outstanding Royalties at the Penoles Project

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 13, 2022) - Capitan Mining Inc. (TSXV: CAPT) ("Capitan" or the "Company") is pleased to report results for six reverse-circulation (RC) drill holes from the Capitan Hill oxide-gold deposit, at its 100%-owned Peñoles project in Durango, Mexico. In addition, management is also pleased to report that after several months of negotiation they have entered into a purchase agreement to acquire a portfolio of royalties including a 2% royalty on the Capitan Gold oxide deposit from Exploraciones Altiplano.


  • Drillhole CARC 21-48: returned 35.1m of 0.42 g/t Aueq including 4.6m of 1.1 g/t Aueq
  • Extends mineralization 170m down-dip from hole 21-CARC-25 on cross section -100
  • Royalty Buyback: Total purchase price of royalty portfolio is US $1.0M over two years, payable in cash and shares
  • The Altiplano royalty portfolio included a 2% net smelter royalty (NSR) on the Capitan Hill oxide-gold deposit
  • Any shares issued to Altiplano are subject to right of first refusal (ROFR) allowing Capitan to market and place shares with investors if Altiplano elects to sell
  • This transaction with Altiplano in combination with Capitan's contractual option to retire Riverside Resources 1% royalty for C$250,000 will leave the Peñoles project royalty free and will enhance overall project economics for investors
  • Drilling to resume in late January following holiday break
  • Assays for 11 drill holes are pending
  • Royalty Purchase Agreement

    Capitan Mining has entered into a purchase agreement to acquire all outstanding net smelter royalties (NSR's) on mining claims in the Peñoles project from Exploraciones del Altiplano, a private Mexican exploration company. The royalties covered a number of targets including the current gold-silver resource areas of Capitan and Jesús María. This included a 2% NSR on the Capitan Hill claims, 0.75% on claims covering the Jesús María, San Rafael, Pinchazo and Capitan 2 targets and 0.5% on third-party claims surrounding these targets. The total consideration for the transaction is US$1.0M, which will be paid 50% in cash and 50% in Capitan shares over a staged 2-year payment schedule. Capitan will also retain a right of first refusal (ROFR) on any shares distributed to Altiplano as consideration for the royalty purchase; allowing the company the opportunity to place Altiplano's shares, upon written notice from Altiplano of their intentions to sell.

    In addition to the royalties held by Altiplano, the Peñoles project has a 1% royalty owned by Riverside Resources which was created as part of the asset spinout in 2020. Capitan has the contractual option to purchase and retire the Riverside royalty for C$250,000 at any time.

    Capitan's CEO, Alberto Orozco, stated: "We are very happy to have completed the purchase of the Peñoles project royalty portfolio from Exploraciones Altiplano. This agreement paves the way for the project to be royalty-free and will benefit all shareholders going forward, as we evaluate the economics of the Capitan Hill oxide-gold deposit."

    Exploration update: Capitan Hill Oxide-Gold Deposit

    The results for the final 6 holes of the 2021 Phase 2 drill program at the Capitan Hill oxide-gold deposit are presented below. These drillholes consisted of both step-out drill holes located in the central and southeastern portion of the deposit as well as one infill hole located in the western portion of the deposit.

    Central and Southeast Step-out Holes

    Holes 21-CARC-44, 46, 47, 48 and 49 tested the down-dip extension of the Capitan zone in the central and southeast portion of the deposit, to extend both the Capitan main and Hanging wall zones to the south.

    Hole-21-CARC 48, was a 170m step-out on section -100, and was successful in extending mineralization on that respective section. The hole returned several, narrow, low-grade intervals over the first 200m of the hole, similar to adjacent holes that are on-strike and up-dip. Of particular significance, the hole returned the highest-grade interval to date in the southeastern portion of the Capitan deposit returning 35.1m of 0.42 g/t Aueq, including 4.6m of 1.1g/t Aueq. This interval occurred just before the hole terminated and is the deepest intersection of higher-grade mineralization to date at Capitan Hill. This intersection also supports the hypothesis that the holes above, may not have been drilled deep enough (zone was displaced to depth), given the position of mineralized interval in hole 21-CARC-48. (See Figures 1 & 2)

    Holes 21-CARC-44, 46, 47, and 49 were large step-out holes located on sections 100, -250, 200, and 000 respectively. These step-out holes were drilled between 75 and 175m down-dip from the previous holes on their respective sections. In general, these holes returned relatively narrow, low-grade intercepts that did not correlate well with mineralization returned in previous drilling located up-dip (see Table 1 below). Given that the holes above were all drilled in the same vicinity as one another, it is interpreted that there may be some displacement of the main zone down-dip, possibly related to the Santa Theresa fault, which the holes crossed before they reached their target depth. Of note: the above holes were terminated due to the depth capacity of the rig, and ground conditions.

    Figure 2: Cross Section

    To view an enhanced version of Figure 2, please visit:

    Strategic Infill

    Hole 21-CARC-45 is located on section 350 and was designed to twin a historic diamond drill hole that was not sampled adequately. The hole intersected both the Hanging Wall and Capitan Main zone and returned width and grades typical of the mineralization in that area. In total, 74.7m of gold mineralization was encountered at the Capitan Main Zone in two separate intervals, with the best interval returning 44.2m at 0.28 g/t Aueq.

    Summary of Phase 2 Program

    The 2021 Phase 2 drill program was focused on testing and expanding the continuity of oxide gold mineralization at the Capitan Hill deposit, to better define the boundaries of both the Capitan Main Zone, and the more poorly defined Hanging Wall Zone.

    Step-out drilling during the 2021 Phase 2 program, has significantly expanded the footprint of both the Hanging Wall and Capitan Main zone compared to the 2020 envelope (See Figure 3). Additionally, infill drilling has helped to define higher-grade shoots within the lower grade envelope in the central and western portions of the deposit.

    The Phase 2 program totals include 6,036m of drilling completed in 21 RC drillholes, bringing the total amount of drilling by Capitan to 12,208m. Drilling continues at Capitan's Penoles project and management will provide guidance in a separate press release in the coming week.

    Tinka Increases Scale of The High-Grade Copper-Gold Discovery at Silvia NW

    Thursday, January 13, 2022 6:00 AM

    VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE January 13, 2022 / Tinka Resources Limited ("Tinka" or the "Company") (TSXV & BVL: TK) (OTCQB: TKRFF) is pleased to announce an exploration update at its 100% owned zinc-silver and copper-gold projects in Central Peru.


    Silvia NW copper-gold project:

    • Copper-gold mineralization at ‘Area A' has been significantly expanded with the discovery of high-grade copper-gold veins ("Skarn Veins") in limestone up to 100 metres across-strike from previously sampled mineralized skarn. The footprint of the skarn mineralization now covers an area of 550 metres by 400 metres including areas of shallow cover;
    • Skarn Veins grade up to 1.1% copper and 7.9 g/t gold from 17 grab and rock chip samples over intervals of 0.1 to 0.3 metres - individual samples range between 0.02% and 1.1% copper, and between 0.05 g/t and 7.4 g/t gold;
    • Previous sampling across the original skarn discovery outcrop at Area A included 46 metres at 1.9 g/t gold and 0.8% copper, including 6 metres at 2.7% copper and 12.8 g/t gold ( see release dated November 10, 2021);
    • A preliminary mineralogical study of a high-grade copper-gold sample from Area A shows that gold occurs as fine-grained native gold up to 20 microns in size inside chalcopyrite, while primary copper mineralization occurs almost entirely as chalcopyrite with trace amounts of late covellite;
    • At Silvia NW, Areas A, B and C define a potential footprint of 3 x 1 kilometres. Sampling results from Area B (including trenches and soils) are currently being collated and interpreted by our technical team;
    • Field work has commenced in preparation for an Environmental Impact Declaration (or "DIA") to obtain the necessary permits for drilling at Silvia NW.
    Ayawilca zinc-silver project:

    • The Company continues to advance its flagship Ayawilca zinc-silver project, following the update of the project's PEA in October 2021, which highlighted the potential for Ayawilca to become a global top-10 zinc producer (see PEA news release dated October 14, 2021). Tinka is planning a resource extension and definition drill program at South Ayawilca during the first half of 2022. Details of this program will be announced soon.
    Dr. Graham Carman, Tinka's President and CEO, stated: "Tinka's field work at Silvia NW continues to expand the scale of this exciting new copper-gold skarn prospect. The discovery of Skarn Veins in the limestone surrounding the original discovery outcrop is very important because it shows that the mineralized system is significantly wider than previously thought. Skarn deposits in Peru have formed some of the largest and highest-grade copper deposits in the world, prime examples being Antamina (a global top-10 copper mine) some 90 km to our north, and Las Bambas in southern Peru. A preliminary mineralogical study of the copper-gold mineralization at Silvia NW shows that copper occurs almost exclusively as chalcopyrite, while gold appears to occur mostly in the form of fine-grained native gold. Also, the mineralization at Zone A does not appear to contain significant levels of deleterious elements. Our team has continued its sampling and mapping program at Areas B and C, and we look forward to reporting progress once all results are received."

    "At our flagship Ayawilca zinc-silver project, a geological reinterpretation of near vertical structures discovered at South Ayawilca in 2020 suggests that there is further potential to expand the high-grade silver-lead-zinc mineralization. We are planning to commence a resource extension and definition drill program during the first half of 2022, which will include drill holes aimed at expanding this style of mineralization, " Dr. Carman continued.

    Updated Results at Silvia NW

    Tinka's exploration program at Silvia NW has focused on the mapping and sampling of Area A, believed to expose the deepest and highest grade portion of the skarn system along the 3 km x 1 km trend.

    Copper-gold mineralization at Area A lies in the base of a valley and has been mapped over a 550 metre by 400 metre area (see Geology map - Figure 2). Skarns are hosted by limestone of the Jumasha Formation (Cretaceous age) and within intrusive dikes (Tertiary age). Mineralized skarn is exposed in the central part of the area, surrounded by marble (recrystallized limestone). There are substantial areas of scree cover between outcrops of skarn, due to the steepness of the valley walls. Mineralized skarn is developed within both the limestone and intrusive dikes of quartz-feldspar-biotite porphyry. Multiple, subparallel structures orientated ENE-WSW and NE-SW, are believed to control the copper-gold mineralization.

    "Skarn Veins" reported here have been mapped and sampled in the surrounding limestones on the western and southern side of Area A, some 100 metres from outcrops of continuous skarn near the centre of the valley (previously trench sampled - see Figures 2 and 3). Skarn Veins are hosted in a north-south oriented garnet skarn measuring up to 50 metres in strike length and up to 20 metres in thickness, developed in Jumasha Formation limestone. Strongly mineralized veins, which are largely oxidized, have multiple orientations and individual thicknesses up to 0.3 metres.

    Skarn mineralization consists of garnet-magnetite-pyroxene-amphibole and other calcsilicates with chalcopyrite and pyrite. Copper mineralization occurs predominantly as chalcopyrite, while gold appears to occur mostly as native gold with possible telluride minerals (yet to be formally identified). The location and form of the Skarn Veins is shown in Figure 3. A photomicrograph of high-grade copper and gold mineralization from Area A, including native gold within chalcopyrite, is shown in Figure 4. Table 1 highlights the new copper-gold rock sample results from Area A.

    Notes on sampling and assaying

    Trenches were dug up to a depth of 1 metre, where possible, across areas of outcrop (partially weathered) to test the grade of skarn and adjacent limestone and intrusions. Trench samples are continuous samples collected with hammer and chisel over 1 to 2 metre intervals. In areas of sporadic outcrop, samples are taken as semi-continuous rock chips. Tinka believes that the trench samples are representative of the outcrop and are non-selective. Selective samples were collected across narrow mineralized structures and are not necessary representative. Samples were bagged and labelled in the field. Samples were sent to Certimin laboratory in Lima where samples were dried, crushed to 90% passing 2mm, then 1 kg pulverized to 85% passing 75 microns. Gold was analysed by fire assay on 30 g (method G0108) and multi-element analysis by ICP using multi-acid digestion (method G0176). Gold assays above 10 g/t Au were re-assayed by a high grade fire assay method and a gravimetric finish (method G0014). Copper assays over 1% Cu were re-assayed by atomic absorption (method G0039). Standards and blanks were not inserted by Tinka but were inserted at the laboratory.

    Fireweed Drills 6.9% Zinc, 5.0% Lead, and 48.7 g/t Silver over 11.7 m True Width at Tom East

    Vancouver, British Columbia: FIREWEED ZINC LTD. (“Fireweed” or the “Company”) (TSXV: FWZ; OTCQB: FWEDF) is pleased to announce further assay results from the 2021 drilling program at the Macmillan Pass project, Yukon, Canada where an infill hole at Tom East (see Maps 1 & 2) encountered high-grade laminated mineralization.

    • Hole TS21-001 intersected 10.41% zinc, 11.58% lead, and 149.9 g/t silver over 7.99 m (true width 2.46 m) within a broader interval of 6.92% zinc, 5.03% lead, and 48.7 g/t silver over 37.99 m (11.70 m true width).
    • Tom East is the highest-grade deposit on the property and remains open for expansion.
    • Assay results from the last two holes at Boundary West are pending.

    Table 1: Drill Results, Tom East Zone

    Brandon Macdonald, CEO, stated
    “Tom East continues to deliver high-grade results consistent with previous drilling in the area. As we continue to develop the resource, it is highly encouraging that we continue to intersect these wide high-grade zones. These results will be used to guide future drilling, enhance existing geological models, and upgrade the resource. In the coming weeks, we look forward to more drill results from the last two holes at Boundary West.”

    Tom East Drilling Results

    Hole TS21-001 was drilled at Tom East, a high-grade zone within the Tom deposits area (Maps 1 and 2). Tom East hosts a current Mineral Resource of 0.81 Mt at 8.74% zinc, 8.62% lead, and 110.0 g/t silver Indicated Resource in addition to 1.68 Mt at 9.86% zinc, 12.86% lead and 170.0 g/t silver Inferred Resource (see Fireweed news releases dated January 10th, 2018, and reports filed on for details). The Tom East Zone is hosted within and around the hinge of a tight north-plunging syncline fold containing stratiform laminated sphalerite, galena, and barite mineralization. The mineralization is hosted by late-Devonian diamictite and carbonaceous mudstones in the Portrait Lake Formation (Earn Group).

    Photo 1: Hole TS21-001 at 148.53-148.73 m illustrating laminated high-grade mineralization.

    The mineralization comprises laminated to massive sulphides, predominantly consisting of thinly laminated sphalerite, galena, barite, and chert. Soft-sediment deformation has created chaotic laminae (Photo 1) further distorted by regional folding. Mineralization is consistent with other intervals encountered within the Tom East and Tom West zones. Geological information from this hole will inform ongoing geological models for resource expansion.

    Notes on sampling, assaying, and data aggregation:

    The diamond drill core logging and sampling program was carried out under a rigorous quality assurance / quality control program using industry best practices. Drill intersections in this release are all HQ3 (split tube) size core (61.1mm / 2.4-inch diameter) with recoveries typically above 85% unless otherwise noted in the table of results. After drilling, core was logged for geology, structure, and geotechnical characteristics, then marked for sampling and photographed on site. The cores for analyses were marked for sampling based on geological intervals with individual samples 1.5 m or less in length. Drill core was cut lengthwise in half with a core saw; half-core was sent for assays reported in this news release, and the other half is stored on site for reference. Bulk density was determined on site for the entire length of each sample assayed by measurement of mass in air and mass in water. Sample duplicate bulk density determinations and in-house bulk density standard determinations were each made at a rate of 5%. Since 2017, four in-house bulk density standards (mineralized drill core from the Tom deposit that span a range of densities) have been used and show an acceptable long-term precision. Certified standard masses are used to calibrate the scale balance used for bulk density determinations.

    A total of 5% assay standards or blanks and 5% core duplicates are included in the sample stream as a quality control measure and are reviewed after analyses are received. Standards and blanks in 2021 drill results to date have been approved as acceptable. Duplicate data add to the long-term estimates of precision for assay data on the project and precision for drill results reported is deemed to be within acceptable levels. Samples were sent to the Bureau Veritas preparation laboratory in Whitehorse, Yukon, where the samples were crushed and a 500 g split was sent to the Bureau Veritas laboratory in Vancouver, B.C to be pulverized to 85% passing 200 mesh size pulps. Clean crush material was passed through the crusher and clean silica was pulverized between each sample. The pulps were analyzed by 1:1:1 Aqua Regia digestion followed by Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-ES/ICP-MS) multi-element analyses (BV Code AQ270). All samples were also analyzed for multiple elements by lithium borate fusion and X-ray fluorescence analysis (XRF) finish (BV Code LF725). Over-limit Pb (>25.0%) and Zn (>24.0%) were analyzed by lithium borate fusion with XRF finish (BV Code LF726). Silver is reported in this news release by method AQ270, and zinc and lead are reported by LF725 or LF726. Bureau Veritas (Vancouver) is an independent, international ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited laboratory.

    Results in this news release are length and bulk-density weighted averages as would be used in a Mineral Resource estimate. Readers are cautioned that in Fireweed news releases prior to 2020, only length weighted assay averages were reported which may result in slightly lower (under-reported) average values. Length and bulk-density weighted averages have been reported as these most accurately represent the average metal-content of the intersections.

    Element79 Gold Increases Capital Position, Stakes Additional Claims

    Wednesday, January 12, 2022 5:00 AM

    VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / January 12, 2022 / Element79 Gold Corp. (CSE:ELEM)(OTC PINK:ELMGF)(FSE:7YS) ("Element79 Gold", the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its ongoing progress within the Abitibi Subprovince targeting bulk tonnage style gold mineralization at the Dale Property in Ontario, Canada.

    The Company has made all payments required to satisfy the existing agreement on the Dale Property until December 31, 2022 and, following the completion of its Phase 1 Exploration Program, Element79 Gold has increased the size of its existing 1,735 hectare property by staking an additional 245.5 hectares directly adjacent to the Western and North-Western borders of its existing claims, bringing the total land package to 1,980.5 hectares.

    "Further interpretation of magnetic surveys and historic prospecting has reinforced the value of these newly-staked claims on the West-Northwest borders of the Dale Property," stated President and CEO of Element79 Gold, James Tworek. "With the completed acquisition of our Nevada gold assets, the Company is on track to meet all short-term and mid-term development goals across our growing portfolio of properties."

    Work Program Leadership and Team: A Long History of Mining

    Element79 Gold is pleased to have the experienced leadership of its director, Mr. Neil Pettigrew, M.Sc, P.Geo., and his team at Fladgate Exploration Consulting Corporation ("Fladgate") managing the Phase 1 program on the Dale Gold Property. The Fladgate team has historically worked with clients such as Barrick Gold Corporation ("Barrick Gold") (NYSE listed) and Newmont Corporation ("Newmont") (NYSE listed) and several names which have gone on to be acquired including Goldcorp, Inc. (acquired by Newmont), PC Gold Inc. (acquired by First Mining), and Placer Dome (acquired by Barrick Gold).

    2021 Dale Gold Property Phase I Exploration Program Highlights in Ontario

    Following up on the high-resolution data obtained from the drone-based magnetic survey completed by Element79 Gold in 2021, Element79 Gold has completed its Phase 1 Exploration Program, consisting of trenching, channel sampling, prospecting, mapping and soil sampling following up on historic prospecting by the vendors of the property which has yielded up to 3.82 g/t gold, including several highly anomalous samples grading greater than 0.1 g/t gold, with assay results pending. The mineralization present on the Dale property is associated with zones of strong silicification and disseminated pyrite, which the Company believes are prospective for bulk tonnage style gold mineralization. The Company intends to pursue the Phase 2 work program (including 1,500m of diamond drilling) as recommended within the 43-101 Technical Report following favourable results from Phase 1.(1)

    Surrounding Area Hosts Some of the World's Largest Gold Deposits

    The Dale Property is a highly prospective early-stage gold project located in the Swazye greenstone belt, which is turn is part of the Abitibi Subprovince which hosts some of the world's largest gold deposits, e.g. the Timmins camp which has produced over 70 million ounces of gold (Figure 1). The Swazye greenstone belt is best known for hosting IamGold's Côté Lake deposit which contains 10.2 million ounces Measured and Indicated and 3.8 million ounces Inferred(2), and is located 50 km southeast of the Dale Property (Figure 1). The Côté Lake project received a Positive Construction Decision in July 2020(3) and plans to achieve commercial production in 2023.
